Scotland map

I bought this old map of Scotland in London last time I was there. I’m always amazed by how much effort the draftsmen would put into work like this. Super cool type skillz. You can see Hamilton, if you look closely, just above ‘Lanerk’ in the second image — where my family are from!


  1. Amazing map.
    My dad used to draw maps back in the day.
    He has a real grudge against computers, because he believes they don't do an as detailed job.


  2. Excellent. Yeah I’d prefer hand-drawn over digital maps…as long as they were accurate…just because of how beautiful they can be.
